Atatürk Oto Sanayı Sitesi
Atatürk Oto Sanayı Sitesi is a huge industrial area for the car producing industries and businesses in the North of Istanbul close to the central business districts Maslak and 4. Levent.
The gentrification in Istanbul is spreading rapidly. Artists started opening up Studio spaces beside the industrial workshops. PG Art Gallery has several show rooms there. Hüseyin Arda is the Founder of Otonom, an artistic collective. He is oscillating between Istanbul and Berlin and was part of the artist collective squatting the “Tacheles” at Oranienburger Strasse in Berlin Mitte.
PG Art and Otonom are partners of the Mahalla Festival. The Streets, they are located in, will be partly used as Venues for the Festival.
Murmuration refers to the phenomenon that results when hundreds, sometimes thousands, of birds fly in swooping, intricately coordinated patterns through the sky.
Murmuration looks also back on the migration movements of the 20th century in the interplay of international relations.
